Philippe Kahn, founder and CEO of Fullpower, one of the world’s leading visionaries in the development of sensory technology,  credited with inventing the first integral camera-phone solution has, in recent years, been turning his considerable talents into the study of wearable sensory technology.

Wearable sensory technology, describe miniature electronic devices which can be worn under, with or on top of clothing. Wearable sensory computers have become an increasingly popular option for anyone who is required to keep track of certain functions when they are in a dormant position, particularly when they are  asleep.

For this reason, Kahn acquiring the SleepTracker IP and patents  was particularly attractive to his company because it further strengthens Fullpower’s portfolio.  “Sleep cycle alarms are as  essential to wearable technology as well as the quantified self.” Kahn further explained.


Thanks to the addition of SleepTracker’s sleep cycle alarm  patent portfolio,  Fullpower’s  patent portfolio will now include an excess of 40 issued patents Kefauver than 70 patents pending.

Fullpower’’s MotionX® Technology Platform will move even more capable providing monitoring capabilities for both continuous activity as well as sleep monitoring and analysis, with their full range of applications now capable of spanning a variety of health and fitness, medical, and navigation applications.

Kahn’s sleep monitoring devices is capable of  tracking a person’s  sleep cycles as well as activate an alarm which will waken the user at an optimal point within their sleep cycle. Once an alarm time is set and the alarm is activated, the device begins to monitor a wearer’s sleep cycle by identifying the points in time at which the wearer moves near body limbs.

Founded by Philippe Kahn more than 10 years ago, Fullpower are now regarded as the world leaders  in the wearable technology revolution with their MotionX Plug & Play Ecosystem being used by some of the largest suppliers of sports equipment in the world.

For his efforts in developing this technology,  Kahn has been the recipient of a number of major technology and business awards and has been named as one of the twenty most important people in the history of the computer industry by the influential Byte Magazine.


Philippe Kahn was born in Paris, France in austere years that followed the end of World War Two. Kahn’s mother was a Holocaust survivor while his father was a self-educated mechanical engineer.

Kahn graduated from the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis with a masters degree in masters in mathematics. During his university days, Kahn found the time to help in the development of software for the MICRAL, regarded as being the earliest non-kit personal computer.   The MICRAL has since been credited by the Computer History Museum as the first ever example of the microprocessor-based personal computer.

Kahn  began his career professional career as one of the first employees  of Niels Jensen, Ole Henriksen, and Mogens Glad, who founded the  Borland computer company in August 1981.  Philippe Kahn first encountered Borland , when they displayed  their new software at the CP/M-82 show in San Francisco the following year. Kahn entered into partnership with the three original founders, and eventually bought them out entirely the following year.

Philippe Kahn was to remain with  Borland Inc. for 12 years, acting at times as either Chairman, President or  CEO of Borland Inc. until he eventually left the company in 1995.

During his extensive professional career, Kahn has been responsible for the establishment  of two  other technology companies, LightSurf Technologies, and Starfish Software as well as Fullpower Technologies. Among the several dozen technology patents that Kahn has developed during his career to date, possibly the most important is  the first camera phone, which  he  introduced in dramatic fashion on June 11, 1997 when he publicly transmitted  a picture of his newly born daughter across the internet.
